Oakland Athletics vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

The Minnesota Twins are the better team, and Pablo Lopez is an all star caliber pitcher when he’s right. The problem is, Lopez hasn’t been great this season, and he’s having a rough month of June. Hogan Harris has been respectable this season and the Athletics have been able to find success here and there. The Twins should be favored and will win if Lopez is Lopez, but the value for game 3 is with the Athletics and the plus money.
